Virginia Historical Society

The Virginia Historical Society (VHS)--a privately funded nonprofit organization--collects, preserves, and interprets the Commonwealth's history, linking past with present to inspire future generations.

Although renovations continue some of our galleries are open. This is one part of a $38 million Story of Virginia Campaign of which more than $34 million has been committed to date.

Visitors may connect with the 8.5 million objects in the VHS collection through the research library, a variety of programs, and website to learn more about the unparalleled story of Virginia.

The VHS is located at 428 North Boulevard in Richmond's Museum District. Admission is free. Hours are Monday-Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. for the library, museum shop and a variety of programs. The VHS is closed on Sunday.
